October #1 - TOUCH

Title: Touch

Author: Francine Prose

Publisher: Harper Teen

Copyright: 2009

ISBN: 978-0-06-137517-0

Series or stand-alone: Stand-alone

Setting: Germantown, PA

1st Sentence:

"Are the boys who assaulted you present in the courtroom?"


This book is a young adult book about ninth-grader Maise's concepts of friendship, loyalty, self-acceptance, and truth which are tested to their limit after a school bus incident with the three boys who have been her best friends since early childhood.

I enjoyed SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson better than this book, although it kept my attention. I thought there was a lot of repetition and could have been a short story but I would give it to any of my YA readers.
